A Little Bit of Spring

For my card today I've used an old Stampendous stamp that I hardly ever use anymore.  I stamped it twice, colored it with Prismacolor pencils, and then cut out the flowers and added them on pop dots.  I cut out a window and backed it with some vellum that has a faint pink and green floral design.  I also used a cuttlebug embossing folder.  I stamped the sentiment, cut it out, and added it with pop dots, also.

I added the full image as an insert on the inside.

  I recently bought a distressing tool and it really does a better job then the scissors I used to use.

Thank you so much for visiting and have a blessed day!
